This is no ordinary flat. A team of scientists and designers spent three years creating it from a material we invented called Banbū Leather. We love testing it in new categories!

It has an interior made from bamboo fabric.

A sole made from natural rubber.

And it’s biodegradable in a landfill.

(But not until you want that to happen!)

Bamboo is the most regenerative plant on the planet.

Creating this vegan material used ⅓ less water than similar organic fibers. It also saves land and water without requiring land clearing or deforestation.
